I discovered this afternoon that it's already been acknowledged by Microsoft as a bug. It affects VC8 and 9 but is fixed in VC10.

Since I'm using VC8 I'll be trying some workarounds tomorrow. I did try the fstream implementation from boost::filesystem (v1.40, I think) but it seemed to have the same problem. Thanks for your reply.
